Hinder


There are at least two artists using the name Hinder:

1) Hinder is a hard rock group inspired by post-grunge music that was formed in Oklahoma City in July 2001 when guitarist Joe Garvey and drummer Cody Hanson discovered Austin Winkler singing for a cover band at a college dorm party. “I heard him and was blown away,” said Cody. “He has the kind of charisma very few people have and that unique voice. You can’t really compare him to anybody.” Hinder’s perhaps best known for their number one smash “Lips Of An Angel”.

The band is notably influenced both by 90s post-grunge as well as by 80s dirty hard rock and glam metal, with several critics noting their debt to Guns N’ Roses. Cut to almost five years later after Winkler met the guys, and Hinder built a healthy regional following. They released an independent album, titled ‘Far From Close’, which sold out several thousands of copies. The band was the object of an honest-to-goodness bidding war between three different major labels that resulted in its major label debut, titled ‘Extreme Behavior’, coming out to much commercial success in 2005.

True to the group’s origins in Austin Winkler’s cover band, Hinder has released several notable covers of artists that have inspired the band. Examples include “Born To Be Wild” (by Steppenwolf), “Bed of Roses” (by Bon Jovi), “Take Me Home Tonight” (by Eddie Money), and “Thunderstruck” (by AC/DC). Their debut album included the huge hit (and perhaps their best known original song) “Lips Of An Angel”, and said album has been triple-platinum certified by the RIAA.

Hinder is an American rock band from Oklahoma that was formed in 2001 by drummer Cody Hanson, guitarist Joe 'Blower' Garvey, and former lead singer Austin Winkler. The band was inducted into the Oklahoma Music Hall of Fame in 2007. The band is best known for their hits "Get Stoned," "Lips of an Angel," "Better than Me," How Long, "Use Me" and "Without You."
